As the Church of St Mary of the Angels moves towards it’s 50th anniversary
as a Franciscan parish in 2020, there will be monthly events to usher in this milestone.
Let’s make time to come and pray together as a Franciscan parish that we may
deepen our knowledge and love for St Francis of Assisi. So that through his
intercession and life, we may be inspired to know, love and serve God with our life.
The monthly theme is taken from the prayer of St Francis: Make Me An Instrument of Your Peace.
OCTOBER: “It is in dying that we are born again to eternal life”
31 Oct, Thursday | 7pm Mass: Vigil for All Saints Day
NOVEMBER: “where there is darkness light”
1 Nov, Friday | 6.55am, 12.15pm Mass: All Saints Day 6.00pm, 8.00pm
The Franciscan Friars of the Order of the Friars Minor Custody of St Anthony
(Malaysia-Singapore-Brunei) will be meeting for their triennial gathering from
Monday, 14 October to Friday, 18 October.
Please pray for them as they plan for the future, and with the guidance of the
Holy Spirit, they may serve God’s people effectively.
N.B. All weekday masses will continue as usual.
Holy St Francis,
through your kind intercession,
I seek holiness above all things.
I seek the faith, hope, and love
that allowed you to joyfully embrace
our Lord Jesus Christ to such a point
you became like Him,
even with the marks of the Stigmata.
Pray for me Holy Francis,
that I may endure any suffering
with the love of Jesus
and the example you gave to all.
Help me to be generous with the poor
with all that I have,
and to remember to be always grateful
for all the blessings that I have received.
Hear my Novena Prayer,
and intercede for me
for the following needs
(mention your intentions here)
I ask this through Christ Our Lord.
End this prayer with the following:
1 Our Father
1 Hail Mary
1 Glory Be
